How can we develop a comprehensive understanding of the research process in community, health and social care settings?

Covering all stages of the research process, from funding to dissemination, this book considers the views of funders, researchers, communities and policy makers. Drawing on practical examples and relevant international literature, it sheds light on issues that can arise in the process and presents solutions and strategies to deal with a range of challenges.

Organised around a series of themes that capture the essential elements of the research process including covering framing research in theory, commissioning and designing research, utilisation of findings and knowledge transfer, this book provides practical guidance for those involved in child welfare and education, nursing and clinical practices, community studies and the social sciences. It will be a key resource for all those who are interested in developing their understanding of the research and evaluation process in these areas.
